As a real estate agent, your days are generally busy and always different. The biggest advantage is the flexibility of naming your own schedule, and being able to take time off for the kids’ school or sports events. The sky is the limit as to how much money you could earn. The more work you are able to put in, the greater the reward. Real estate is a massive and diverse industry, and no matter where you move there’s always a demand for new agents. When you’re helping people with what’s likely the biggest financial decision of their lives, they tend to treat you and the process with respect.
The only downside is that your income is entirely dependent on sealing the deal. Just like other work-from-home career options, you’ll undoubtedly start small, but referrals in real estate are a huge source of business. If you have children who are involved in school/sporting activites or if you are active in the community, these are great ways of prospecting for potential clients. As time goes on, your schedule will fill up – as will your bank account.
